San Diego is a great place to take a vacation. There is so much to do! It has everything that I look for in a vacation. A city to visit, good food, sites, and easy transportation.
The city is great. The downtown area has a couple of distinct districts: the Marina, Gaslamp, and Little Italy. Each has something great to offer. In particular, the Gaslamp has all of the restaurants. You can find any type of food. Searsucker and Osteria are some of my favorites.
Don't forget about the beaches in San Diego. There are so many to pick from. I really like going to Coronado because it is so close and there are some great restaurants to go to on the boardwalk.
Other than that, you could just rent a bicycle and ride around, or go see a Padres game . I like baseball here. The ballpark is right downtown so basically from any hotel you can just walk there.
I say check San Diego out for your next vacation. Take some awesome pictures thanks to this special promotion for a lecture series on how to take travel photos. Make your trip, and your pictures, amazaing!
